Zeutschel, Phase One, and Digital Transitions have joined their unique products and services to bring the most efficient ScanStudio to the North American Market. The ScanStudio is an innovative reproduction system designed to digitize a wide array of collection types by utilizing the foremost technologies available on the market. Zeutschel’s ScanStudios have the capability to image books, manuscripts, film and small three-dimensional objects. With these capabilities, Zeutschel is looking to move their equipment beyond Libraries and Archives and into Museums as well. Digital Transitions Division of Cultural Heritage has successfully marketed these areas in North America for over a decade. We are excited to combine Digital Transitions solutions and sales capabilities with Zeutschel’s brand name; this collaboration is bound to be successful.
Jörg Vogler, President of Zeutschel GmbH: “Digital Transitions has been a great supporter of the cultural heritage community for many years, with an outstanding photographic experience and customer service. Zeutschel is therefore happy and proud to partner-up with Digital Transitions. Together, we will work hard to make the ScanStudio a success in the North American marketplace.”
“When we were given the opportunity to distribute the world’s best-known brand in the Library and Archives community powered by the world’s best-known imaging technology–Phase One, we couldn’t wait to start. The union of our solutions based marketing approach and their fifty years of industry leading experience is truly exciting.” Peter Siegel, Owner and Founder of The Digital Transitions Division of Cultural Heritage.

Zeutschel is introducing a new solution for universal use in digitization projects. Available in sizes A1 and A2 ,the ScanStudio is an overhead scanning system and photo studio that is powered by Phase One technologies in one system.

The image results meet the highest quality standards defined by Metamorfoze, FADGI and ISO 19264.
At the same time, the ScanStudio offers numerous, easily interchangeable scanner tables with the Zeutschel “roll-in/roll-out” changeover system. The automatic A1 book cradle for originals supports a book thickness of up to 50 cm, and together with the OmniScan digitization software it combines the highest productivity with extremely simple operation.
